Calistoga Ranch Wine and Condiments

vineyard in the winter

We can thank mustard for Napa Valley's coveted wine notes, as this unlikely seed provides vital nutrients and phosphorus to our beloved grapes. Though the golden plant didn't always grow in Napa, every year from January to March, our vineyards are blanketed in an alluring amber hue, which coincidentally fuels the condiment stand at roadside hotdog outpost, Gotts. You don't even have to wait in line to savor a Niman Ranch Fearless Frank, a dog topped with cheddar cheese and house-made chile - and, of course, mustard.

Esperanza A Breath of Fresh Aire

In 1592, explorers sailing the Sea of Cortez first had the idea that the Baja Peninsula could act as a perfect refuge for trade ships arriving from a long Pacific voyage. It would be a place to breathe in fresh air and to rest and recharge before continuing on their voyage. Fast forward to present-day Baja and while the type of voyagers have changed, the primary needs have remained the same. Come November, 2018, groups will be able to find their refuge in a new, dramatic oceanfront event space called AIRE.

Madeline Get Elevated at Madeline

elevated in telluride colorado

I love skiing the slopes just as much as any local. But I’ll admit it: Summer might be even better than winter for enjoying elevated adventures at Madeline. Not only is playtime on the peaks infinitely more varied in the warmer months—because of the temperate weather, it’s also the best time of year to play above the peaks. As the days get longer, there’s more time than ever to try these adventures. Here are my top five favorite ways to enjoy the “high” life in Telluride. Why don’t you try one (or all five) this summer?

Calistoga Ranch Baby Goats are Napa's Unsung Heroes

Unlike us, goats prefer grass and weeds over grapes and wine. This is why baby goats are the true unsung heroes of Calistoga Ranch. When brother and sister duo, Olive and Pepper, aren't bobbing and bucking about, they upkeep the property grounds by munching the grass to manicured perfection. Though this ancient technique has been around for centuries, environmental studies show these feisty babes reduce our carbon footprint by naturally maintaining and fertilizing our vineyards.

What feels dense inside, appears light as a tuft of cotton, but weighs up to a million pounds? Find out when you glide your fingers through them during an Ultralight flight above the mountains of Pérez Zeledón. When you buckle-up in the two-seat, fixed-wing Ultralight aircraft you can discover what clouds feel like as you glimpse whales, dolphins, and turtles of the Pacific Ocean from above.

Element 52 Telluride’s High-Altitude Secrets

When Eric Troutner arrived in Telluride, he felt short of breath—and it wasn’t entirely due to the breathtaking landscape. Nestled in the San Juan Mountains, the town sits at 8,750 feet with surrounding peaks soaring as high as 14,000. “There’s almost 30% less oxygen in the air here than at sea level,” he says. “I looked for ways to adjust quickly and found our spa had treatments tailored to ease high-altitude symptoms

Mayflower Clink Glasses to A Weekend of Countryside Life

outdoor seating

The city that never sleeps often sends me seeking elsewhere to find restoration— and a long afternoon spent over peach wine amid the rolling hills at Hopkins Vineyard is usually that place. The haven along the Connecticut Wine Trail, a collection made up of 24 vineyards statewide, is something out of a countryside fairytale. With a charming red barn and endless greenery, the vineyard melts away the memory of city hustle and bustle and soothes you into savoring the sweetness of countryside life.

Madeline Our Spa Director’s New Favorite Healing Ingredient

Massage

In my former life, I was the Spa Director at Mukul in Guacalito, Nicaragua, where I crafted a wellness program that specialized in indigenous rituals, crystals, and other local elements. Now, as the Spa Director at Madeline, I use the same natural approach to healing—and I get to incorporate my new favorite wellness ingredient: CBD. Colorado became one of the first states to legalize recreational marijuana, so it’s only fitting we have CBD, or cannabidiol, a chemical compound found in the cannabis plant, on our spa menu.

Chileno Bay Sunrises are better than Sunsets

One of my favourite jobs here is turning guests into morning people. I oversee the arrival experience and I'll know guests are fully immersed in Chileno Bay when they discover that sunrises in Cabo are different. I can't specifically say what makes them so. Maybe it’s the reflections off the white sand of the beaches, the adobe-coloured desert dunes or the deep sea at dawn, reminiscent of a Monet painting; but it’s truly a gift to greet each day this way and see light like that.
